we went punting on the river cam today. my first time after living here for 2 years. for those that don’t know, “punting” is where one stands at the back of a boat and pushes/steers with a long pole by pushing off the river bottom(similar to venice). as peter and taki will attest, i was terrible at first(easy to be critical when you’re lounging in the boat having a bud)…going in circles, hitting the bank, ramming other punts, losing my balance and almost falling in…but after a while i was king of the river. pictures will be posted here later. here are a few more photos of the crew in and around cambridge two weekends ago. at the market. by the river. on trumpington street. with st. john’s college in the background. in front of king’s college.
